The birth of network era, opened countless small and medium-sized businesses way to entrepreneurship, by knowing the quickest road to import small quantities of goods and began their own network operators / entrepreneurial road.


However, there are many readers who are still wondering on how to solve the payment problem when purchasing with 1688.


If Malaysians want to open Alipay in China, they must first obtain real-name certification. Real-name certification means the person must have a Chinese bank account, but the steps for Malaysians to open an account in China are very complicated, yet it is still possible. You can try to follow our previous article to open a bank account in China. However, China’s policy has been changing and it is impossible to ensure that there will be no other problems in the process of opening an account.

So, do we have a better way to solve the payment problem?


The common answer would be by using Alipay! 

However, a Chinese bank account is still needed for Alipay to function well, because only with the presence of bank card bound to China, Alipay can be used normally to complete a series of processes such as transfer and payment.


There are still some people who will choose to use it: Alipay Payer! 

But if you are purchasing for commercial use, this is not the case. Since Alipay limits the amount of transactions in a single month or a single transaction, a large amount of transaction would be unsuccessful.

Having said that, what is the easiest option to make a payment?


Bank transfer

Usually, when you select “Bank Transfer”, the 1688 platform will provide approximately 5 days for us to make a bank transfer.

  1. Must fill in the Bank option: [Zhejiang Netcom Bank]
  2. Branch/branch/sub-branch must be filled in: [Zhejiang Hangzhou Zhejiang Network Bank Co., Ltd.]
  3. If you fill in the wrong information, the money will be returned.

Finally, what if there is no “bank transfer” in the options on the 1688 website?

The option “Bank Transfer” is not displayed in the option, which means that the seller has not yet activated this function. At this time, you can ask the seller to open the “Fulfilling and Receiving” function.
